, romney considered that path and he took that path, joe, and he tried to press his case last night. the challenge for him was to come out with the kind of aggression that could score for him while still being respectful for the president. and i think he met that challenge. he was on offense most of the time, put the president back on his heels on his record. and he challenged him directly. i thought the strongest moment that he had was when he directly challenged the president on his failure to cut the deficit over the last four years. and he cast that failure not just as a policy issue, but also as a moral issue. >> i think it's not just an economic issue. i think it's a moral issue. i think it's frankly not moral for my generation to keep spending massively more than we take in knowing those burdens will be passed on to the next generation. and they're going to be paying the interest and the principal all their lives and the amount of debt we're adding at a trillion a year is simply not moral. >> the president came back with arguments that were familiar trying to get governor romney t

yesterday after mitt romney's strong performance in wednesday night's presidential debate. i looked at a couple. author of the book health care investing, he were of currently fund manager at a investing company with a focus on health care. >> yeah. >> they did come back by the end of the session yesterday to some extent. what was the rationale that if romney gets in, obama care goes, so people will go back to the emergency room where the -- someone pays for it, but the hospitals get hurt anyway. >> right. simplistic trader thing. obama loses, obamacare goes away, 30 million all show up at the hospital and don't pay the bills. >> and the hospitals, they're results over thes past 0 years have been negatively impacted so-tsto what extent? >> it's changed over time. it's gotten worse as people have had to pay more of their insurance bills, but something like 1300, 1400 basis points of uncompensated care. >> we know that -- what is the percentage before obamacare of people covered in the u.s.? is it 80% by some insurance? >> it's been going down since way before obama. since late '80s. >> in

out is governor romney's proposal is the same proposal, cut regulations, cut taxes, that president bush undertook and we had four of the five worst job creation numbers in the last 60. >> what romney said on the stage wednesday night was we'd be bringing down rates but you shouldn't expect any type of a tax cut because he's going to get rid of deductions, too, so it would be revenue neutral. >> that is inconsistent with everything he said up to wednesday night. >> no. >> but number two, no, joe, it is. >> it's that non-partisan study found with all those assumptions they didn't have anything that he said so they made all these assumptions, ed. >> he said we would sign the ryan budget, the ryan budget calls for across the board 20% tax cut but hear me out. it's not the tax cut i'm focusing on. when you cut taxes, or leave the bush tax cuts in place, et cetera, and get rid of regulations, that's supposed to generate growth in the economy. well, let the record show in the last six years a60 years our te years of job creation occurred when the marginal tax rate was over 50%. >> oh my g

-- let me say one more thing before i forget. romney said something the other night that none of you people caught or didn't care to comment about. i mean the media. when he talked about cutting back on government, he made it very clear he's going to do it by attrition, because he understands, if he does it any other way, he will only aggravate the economic problems we have. so as people quit and retire, but one more thing i would urge you, if you work in the department of commerce and they have, they don't need you, and you, the department of transportation and there's an opening there, whether you have whatever the hell it is, gs number whatever it is, you're given the chance to go to that job or you're told you're being exited. there's a lot of ways that can be done and it will be done. the thing i feel confident about is this man has the experience of having done it many times before. >> and watching it, it seems like it's what it seemed like, too, didn't it? >> what? >> watching the debate. >> of course. well one guy didn't have the crib sheet, he didn't have the teleprompter so
